Hi Virtually Readers! The lovely Holly at Nut Free Nerd tagged us for the Beauty and the Beast book tag (thanks, Holly–you can read her post here ) and so that is what you get to read today. I watched the movie when it came out and mostly liked it and OH MY GOSH the music. I found that it was very visually saturated but overall enjoyable and Emma Watson and Dan Stevens are cool.
Oh What a Guy, Gaston (a villain you can’t help but love)
I don’t really go for villains. But I thought Declan, from Letters to the Lost, was really interesting, because he was seen as a villain, and he really struggled not to fit those stereotypes, which took a lot of effort. He’s a wonderfully complex, imperfect character who I loved reading about.
Here’s Where She Meets Prince Charming (your OTP)
I Want Much More Than This Provincial Life (a character destined for bigger things)
Princess Anya, from Frogkisser! is just an ordinary Princess ina tiny kingdom. But as she enters her quest, she ends up being involved in a whole lot of things she didn’t expect. This book is really fun, and if you like middle-grade quirky fantasy, read it.
Be Our Guest (a book that makes you hungry)
I’ve only just started it, but North of Happy begins each chapter with the ingredients of a recipe and I love that a lot, and it makes me long for all sorts of food that often I haven’t even heard of before.
Beauty and the Beast (Opposites attract)
This one, to me, is really obvious: Karou and Akiva from Daughter of Smoke and Bone. I’m not going to say why they’re opposites, because it’s a spoiler, but they come from totally different worlds and their relation is adorable.
I’m taking a break from tagging people, but if you want to do this, go for it. Have you watched Beauty and the Beast? What’s your favourite song? Pair it with a book in the comments!
